I’m Mallary Tenore, managing director of Images & Voices of Hope (ivoh), a nonprofit organization that shows how the media can be a force for good.  I run ivoh’s website, plan for our annual summit,  fundraise, develop partnerships and help grow the organization’s audience and reach. It’s a big job, but one that I love.

Up until October 2013, I ran the Poynter Institute’s website, Poynter.org. I edited the site’s stories, reported on the media news industry, and ran several editorial projects for the site. I worked at Poynter for six years and remain an adjunct faculty for the Institute. My teaching focuses on how journalists can improve their use of social media. I do social media consulting on the side and am always looking for opportunities to help people learn how to use social media and other forms of technology to improve the work they do.

Prior to my time at Poynter, I wrote for The Dallas Morning News, The Boston Globe, The Tampa Bay Times, The Worcester Telegram & Gazette, The Lowell Sun, The MetroWest Daily News and Rhode Island Monthly magazine. I also served as editor-in-chief of the student newspaper at Providence College, my alma mater.

I married my wonderful husband, Troy, in October 2013 and am currently working on a memoir.
